"Excellent Excellent Excellent.... did I forget - EXCELLENT!!!"Rate:  5 Stars
Man what a place, what great people running the place , right from the owner Ahmet I think.. to the waiters to the cleaning girl... best people in Turkey as far as me and my girlfriend are concerned. After having been mistreated by two so called 4 star hotels in Istanbul, this place was like a whiff of fresh air... they made our trip to Istanbul worthwhile and memorable. The rooms are top of the line... from the fittings to the decor to the bathrrooms... everything exudes class and shows how much thought must have gone in to design this place.... the location is unparalleled... 5 minutes from both the Blue Mosque and the Aya Sofya.... there is nothing here that will disappoint you.... worth every euro that they charge.... Keep it up...

"great location, great atmosphere"Rate:  5 Stars
I only stayed at The Seven Dreams Hotel for one night, but I wish I could have stayed longer. The location of the hotel is amazing, just around the corner from the Blue Mosque and the Ayasofia. The view from the roof is incredible, looking out at the Bosphorous and the Ayasofia. In the hot weather, the roof is especially nice, as it provides more of a breeze.
The staff was super friendly and very hospitable. They were happy to help in any way, and always had a smile.
The room was so comfortable. The bed was so soft and the linens were very fine. The windows are huuuge so they let in lots of natural light, which makes the rooms feel even more spacious. The air conditioning was quiet and definitely necessary at this time of year, which was great help with a good night`s rest.
The restaurant En La Luna, was simply fantastic. I had yogurt kebab and later on I had a fantastic dish which was lamb wrapped in eggplant and cheese with rice. Both meals were some of the best food I have ever had. I highly, highly recommend both the hotel and the restaurant.

"Still my home in Sultanahmet"Rate:  4 Stars
This is the third time I have stayed at Seven Dreams and I will continue to come back - for as long as they will have me.
The staff are like family and treat me as such - with warmth and politeness and always seemed pleased to see me.
I wish I could take the bed home with me - I havent found one more comfortable yet!
And the location is brilliant.
You only have to step outside and you are in the middle of it all. Blue Mosque to your left and Hagia Sofia to your right.
And the free breakfasts at their sister hotel Seven Hills are yum - and the view is amazing
So thank you again Seven Dreams
I will most definitely be back :)

"Fond memories"Rate:  4 Stars
I stayed at the Seven Dreams twice in 2010 and was bowled over by the welcoming attitude of the staff; nothing was too much trouble. The hotel itself is a mixture of the good and not so good. The reception is scruffy and the carpeting going up the stairs was dirty and quite sticky underfoot, but the bedroom and bathroom were immaculate in fittings, furnishings and cleanliness. The restaurant was not open when I was there, so breakfast was taken at a sister hotel, the Seven Hills, 100 yards away. What a way to start a day, the most superb buffet you could imagine, together with stunning views of the Sultanahmet area.
I will certainly return to the Seven Dreams, but I do think it is a little overpriced for what it offers.
Room tip: The first floor rooms are best, in my opinion.

"Great location and staff - need to work out kinks to become boutique"Rate:  3 Stars
Seven Dreams has great potential but need to work out some kinks to become a nice modern boutique or apartment hotel. It is more like a B&B then a hotel. It has 2 rooms on each floor of the 3 floors. The suite on the top floor is actually a larger room with a partitioned bathroom, not enclosed for privacy. The tub is beside the bed, exposed. It works for couple but may not for others. Here are the Pros and Cons.
â€¢ Very nice contemporary dÃ©cor and HUGE beautiful bathroom
â€¢ Clean and soft linens
â€¢ Great friendly and accommodating staff
â€¢ Good quality maps, helpful service
â€¢ Good location to major attractions in the Sultanahmet area (next to Hotel Uyan, 7 Hills Hotel, Four Seasons)
â€¢ Breakfast was fresh (served to you in the street level terrace, not buffet style, same stuff as Rast Hotel but looked fresher); each portion is large so may share instead
â€¢ Since it is not quite a hotel, there is some loss of privacy when guests of the restaurant are within 5 ft of your door talking loudly as they pass by; also there is no door latch or bolt lock, so anyone with the key can enter the room when you are inside the room
â€¢ Room safe is not bolted down so it can be carried away
â€¢ Staff is not hotel trained so cleaning can be hit and miss (although they are very friendly and very responsive to requests)
â€¢ Some odour and noise from restaurant (esp when your room is next to the food elevator to transport meal from ground kitchen to the rooftop) from 9pm to midnight
â€¢ Roof top view is not as nice as claimed because the view is dominated by nearby rooftops of similar heights, most of Aya Sofya and small strip of the sea.
â€¢ No elevator may be a problem for some who have mobility issue
Unfortunately, I will not recommend this until they have resolved the restaurant issue. However, I might eat there for the staff service.
Yes, you can hear the morning prayer calls but it is not a problem for us.
